Posted in open discussion last time..thought i should do it right this time around. Alright, I have this Force 85 HP Engine on our 85 Bayliner Capri. Can the lower unit on the engine be removed without all the parts flying everywhere? Thanks

If you're referring to the foot of the engine ( where the prop, water pump, ect are) then yes. Parts shouldn't fly everywhere. You should have 4-6 bolts that hold it on. After you drop it down - you might have a few more to remove. to release the shaft and allow you to take it completely off.

Yeah I think we are gonna get that motor from his as a spare. I don't think he is just giving it to us though. We have our neihboor fixin the lower unit now. (There was a crack in the casing)

its easier said than done..least with johnson/evinrude..you have to disconect the shift linkages wich is below the powerhead and drop it down..puttting it back in you have to make your shift shaft is in the right position( wichever way it came out) assuming no one playd with the control box. Slide it in and use the bolts to suck it in usually ratchet wrenches if you got some work wonder in this spot. reconnect the shift linkage the oposite way you disconected it and put your prop back on and its just that easy

oh yeh - agree with ya 100%. If you've never done it before, I'd highly recommend someone with the experience be with you. they can be real tricky. But as far as parts flying, unless something broke, you shouldn't have that happen.
